Specializes in Neurology

There are many types of aphasia that can be grouped into three major headings: there are the motor type, the most common being broca's aphasia, the receptive type, most commonly wernicke's aphasis. The third is the dissociative or disconnection syndromes. These occur when there is an apparent interruption of association areas to the cortical language areas.
